I have read and listened to this entire series....I consider it one of my most favorite (among them HP, Twilight and Hunger Games). This series has just enough action, mystery and romance. I have also started the spin off series Bloodlines. I didn't care for the narration of the first few books in this series but they were still great. Emily Shaffer was wonderful!!!!
I really have loved the whole series of characters in these books! I found that each character has something to love and to endear him or her to you!
My biggest complaint is that the series is read by 3 different narrators, who do try to read it similarly - like Adrien has his British type accent in all the books, etc but I still would like the same Narrator throughout!
Great and fun storyline!
I love the interaction btwn Dimitri, Rose and Adrian. But was left wondering what happened to certain characters at the end.
I've read these books in the past as they were published, but I loved listening to them again. It gave me a different outlook. I picked up on things I'd missed the first time. Richelle Mead created a very captivating Series.
I really liked Emily Shaffer. Though, I think the voices of Christian and Adrian are super annoying. Lissa's voice is borderline for me. I do love Dimitri's voice!! Overall she does a wonderful job. The best out of all the others. Emily puts enough emotion into her performance to hold your attention. Her pronunciation of the names are great. Her Russian accent is good. I really enjoyed her overall.
I'm not a fan of the background music. It's not as bad in this book as it was the Spirit Bound, but at times it seems louder than the narrator.
It's worth the money. I'm really enjoyed the time I spent listening!
This is a great series. I have read the first few books but i will be getting them to listen to. Soo great.
I love this book and actually love the whole series but I have to say the narrator is simply no good, she doesn’t have the right expression in her voice to properly narrate these amazing characters and makes all the females sound whinny and the accents are too thick for the way the characters have been described, buy the kindle version or the hardback and read it on your own.
I am sadden to see this series come to an end...however, I was glad to see this book come to an end. I greatly enjoyed the previous books and the majority of this one but found less romance and passion that I had hoped for. The entire story seemed to drag and dig deeper and deeper into nothing. I found myslef tuning out a little.
The only other comment I have is that I wish I had read this book and not listended to it. The reader was okay but was not consistant with accents for Adrian and Dimitri. In addition, these accents were not at all how I had imaged them to sound when I read the previous books. Her accents were a little weird. Sorry reader.
I have not been able to stop listening to this last book. I truly wish the author would not let this be the last book. I would love to see what happens to Lissa has queen. I would love to see Demetri and Rose truly have a life together. But what I would really love is to see these series turn into a movie. They would surpass Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipses.
The book might have been a little more enjoyable if not for one of the worst narrators ever to read a book. The story just drones on and on without any real excitement with the exception of some overly emphasized fights...blah, blah, blah. These books are very juvenile and the narrator is inexperienced and annoying to listen to. If you are not a teen, you would more likely enjoy the Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost. In the future, if Emily Shaffer is the narrator, I will read the book instead of purchasing the audiobook, she gives me a headache, I actually have to stop listening to the book for a while to get a break from her whining. Normally I can't wait to listen to whichever book I am enjoying at the time, usually finishing them within a few days of beginning them, but I have been weeks trying to finish this book simply because of the terrible narration.
I got the first book and started off slow but i was glad i stay with it each and ever book got better can't say any of the book are my favorite love all and have good ending and can't wait for the spin off but i do hope it will have some about rose and her life in it
